A Danish crew man, CP Lubeck, fell overboard and was struck by the rudder foil of his Nacra 17 while racing in New Zealand yesterday. 

The injury required surgery. Lubeck is recovering well and will be back in action soon, according to Irish man Marcus Spillane, the President, of the International Nacra 17 Class Association.

Spillane adds 'We have been in contact with World Sailing and Nacra Sailing and are investigating the facts. This is a priority for the Class'.
